                    ORDER AND OPINION TERMINATING PROCEEDING FOR
                                ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW                      
                                          

          On July 12, 1991, the above-named  owner  filed  a  petition  for
          administrative review of an order issued on July 1,  1991,  by  a
          Rent Administrator concerning the housing accommodation known  as
          Apartment 6-D, 35 East 84th Street, New York, New  York,  wherein
          the tenant's application for a rent reduction was denied.

          The Commissioner has reviewed all of evidence in the  record  and
          has carefully considered that  portion  relevant  to  the  issues
          raised by the petition for review.

          On February 18, 1990 the subject tenant filed an application  for
          a rent reduction based on the owner's alleged failure to maintain 
          service alleging defective windows.

          On March 22, 1990, the owner interposed an answer to the tenant's 
          complaint wherein it alleged  that  the  windows  throughout  the
          building were being replaced.

          On June 5 and June 6, 1991 a physical inspection of  the  subject
          apartment was carried out by the Division  of  Housing  and  Com-
          munity Renewal (DHCR).  The inspector, in his report, noted  that
          he was unable to obtain access to the apartment on both occa-
          sions.
           

          On July 1, 1991, the Rent Administrator  issued  the  order  here
          under review, finding that  the  tenant  had  failed  to  provide
          access to the apartment, denying the application, and terminating 
          the proceeding.

          In his petition for  administrative  review  the  tenant  states,
          inter alia "If inspection was solely to confirm new  windows,  we
          have no objection to the order."

          After careful consideration the Commissioner is  of  the  opinion







          FG 420075-RT
          that this proceeding should be  terminated  as  there  no  longer
          exists any issue or controversy to be resolved herein.


          THEREFORE, in accordance with  the  Rent  Stabilization  Law  and
          Code,  it is,

          ORDERED, that this proceeding be, and the same hereby i ,  termi-
          nated.


          ISSUED:



                                                                           
                                                ELLIOT SANDER
                                                Deputy Commissioner
